Topic: mdbootstrap npm package confusion

Aakash Banerjee priority asked 2 years ago

So quite sometime back I bought mdbootstrap and used it with npm install link : "ng-uikit-pro-standard": "git+".

It worked well. When I see some of the new products the package names are different like

mdb-ui-kit mdb-ui-kit-pro-essential and others.

What do the names mean in terms of features is not very readily evident.

My question is the product I bought is that only for Bootstrap 4 or 5 as well? Am I missing out on any features by using the ng-uikit-pro-standard, should I continue using this or move to the newer bootstrap 5 offerings?

Thanks for your help.

The ng-uikit-pro-standard library is a pro version of MDB Angular 4 (based on Bootstrap 4 styles). MDB Angular 5 is a completely new product that uses Bootstrap 5 and mdb-angular-ui-kit and mdb-angular-ui-kit-pro-essential are respectively free and pro versions of MDB Angular 5 (the mdb-ui-kit you mentioned is designed to be used in pure Javascript apps built without frontend frameworks).

You can learn more about differences between MDB Angular 4 and MDB Angular 5 in our documentation:
